Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will wear additional padding if he plays against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Romo's status is uncertain after sustaining a back contusion.
Romo is currently day-to-day with a back injury and his status for Sunday's game is uncertain after being diagnosed with a back contusion. Romo was kneed in the back by Washington linebacker Keenan Robinson on Monday and was replaced by Brandon Weeden before returning for the fourth quarter and overtime.
The News reports that the Cowboys equipment staff will "sew a patch of padding into the T-shirt that Romo wears under his equipment" to protect the injured area in the event that Romo plays.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported Wednesday that Romo's availability will depend on his pain tolerance. The quarterback already wears a jacket to protect his ribs and uses a pad on his lower back, according to the News.
The Cowboys are 6-2 after losing to Washington on Monday. They will host the Cardinals (6-1) on Sunday.
